    How to find and install lateset ncftp RPM?

    I'm certainly not a server admin, but I am trying to figure this out...

    Can anyone show me how to find and then install the latest RPM for ncftp? (RedHat 7.2)

    Thanks!

    mc-4.5.51-36.i386.rpm from ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/7.2/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/
    you can try to use some newer version for e.g. 7.3, but it might not work due to missing/wrong lib versions
    you can get latest sources from http://www.ibiblio.org/mc/
    current stable version is 4.6.0
    there is a pre-compiled version for 7.x, you might want to try it

    The latest RPM for ncftp for RH7.2 appears to be ncftp 3.0.3-6. (I checked at RHN and rpmfind.)

    To install the RPM, issue the following command from a shell prompt.

    rpm -Uvh ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/7...0.3-6.i386.rpm

    whoops, sorry
    latest rpm for 7.2 is ncftp-3.0.3-6.i386.rpm
    ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/7.2/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/
    latest version is 3.1.7
    source from ftp://ftp.ncftp.com/ncftp/ncftp-3.1.7-src.tar.gz
    and linux (x86) binary from ftp://ftp.ncftp.com/ncftp/binaries/n...-export.tar.gz
    if the binary aint working, you can try to install from sources

    wget ftp://ftp.ncftp.com/ncftp/ncftp-3.1.7-src.tar.gz
    tar -xzf ncftp-3.1.7-src.tar.gz
    cd ncftp-3.1.7
    ./configure
    make
    make install

    should do the job
